June’s Movies

Is it July already?!  I  can hardly believe how fast June flew by.  We had a few weeks of sleeping in, Gage actually slept past 8am a few days, and this week he’s been going to nature camp three hours a day plus a few other usual activities.  They actually took an hour and a half hike yesterday!  Needless to say, he’s been sleeping well 🙂  Onto the movies.  I loved both new movies we saw at the theater.

I hope that you will take a few minutes to participate when you can each month.  It’s fun for me and for everyone else who reads it.  I’m not looking for a critical review, just a few words about how you felt about the movie.  This is ongoing so you can leave your 5 words anytime.
